Military Tests

See Department of Defense listing of OSE II’s Cage Code and National stock numbers ( NSN numbers) PDF

The base decided to have OSE II over knighted to the base where OSE II’s application commenced. OSE II removed the bitumen and asphalt that had been re-deposited around the base leaving the grass, and the drainage ditch free of oil.
